It is not always easy to update this solution to the newer version, so the update process needs to be improved.The predictability of the solution needs improvement. Sometimes, if it's doing something at the back end, it may go slow. Today, the backup completion took four hours, but sometimes it can do the backup in 30 minutes or an hour. With solutions like NetBackup, I can predict to a much higher degree of certainty how long something will take to complete.I've found a lot of difficulties on the initial setup and especially in terms of credentials. We really need a Window OS. It doesn't like the domain admin account. it's a primary permission issue.An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing.Updating and configuration can sometimes be a little bit of a hassel, but once you know the product better it is easy to use.I am not very impressed by the technical support I received when I had an issue.The stability of this solution needs to be improved.Maybe in the future, they could do something better with the user interface and the performance, but so far it's a really good, efficient solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with.The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.

We purchased a three-year license, and I think that the prices are ok.There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution.Pricing is based on license packaging and duration. Longer term licenses are less per year and license packages also offer a discount.Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
